UT-Brownsville will kick off its observance of Hispanic Heritage Month with the Involvement Fair at 11 a.m. on the Student Union lawn.
Hosted by the Office of Student Engagement, the fair provides an opportunity for students to learn about and sign up to be members of the various organizations on campus. The event will feature piñatas, candy bags and refreshments.
The national observance began in 1968 when Congress passed a resolution authorizing then-President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim the week including Sept. 15 and 16 as Hispanic Heritage Week.
UT-Brownsville will live stream a debate between Texas gubernatorial candidates Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Casa Bella clubhouse.

A 29-year-old man has been arraigned on charges of harassing and stalking his ex-girlfriend, a UT-Brownsville staff member.
Jose Alberto McKinnon-Guerra was arrested Aug. 28 after the staff member filed a report with University Police saying she was being harassed by her ex-boyfriend.
The staff member told police the ex-boyfriend went to her job and in an aggressive manner demanded if she was seeing anyone else and threatened to hurt the person, according to a police report and probable cause affidavit. The man allegedly told the woman before he left, “If you are seeing anyone, you and him better watch out.”
